Enchondromas are benign tumors , and if no fracture is found, can be just observed over time, as remission or stability over time does not require removal. If a fracture is associated with an enchondroma. your orthopedic provider may wait until the fracture is healed before dealing with the enchondroma, if considered necessary at all.
